i still get upset that she could not hold on just a bit longer...she retired just in time for georgie-boy to replace her with a misogynistic, entitled, asshole.
 
I had the privilege of hearing Judge O'Connor speak recently, she's a very impressive person.
 
Stripping away her party affiliation, I respect her as a person, as a woman.

+Tom Husband I would argue that she exited in proper fashion...if only more people in Washington would bow out gracefully...Washington is too much of a business and lost it's sense of service
